Is Jenn Sterger there too? SUPER AWESOME if so.
Beef O'Brady's Bowl Open Thread
My little sister is distracting me from my game. She went to the parents house a few days early to find my great grandmother is staying at the house too. The things said tonight:
- A vivid description of my grandmother's first period.
- She "doesn't get" why white girls marry black guys, and she feels sorry for their kids because "they have no race."
- My other sister tries to explain that she's not Catholic because religion is a choice. This, if you couldn't tell by the last one, didn't go over so well.
DAMMIT SOUTHERN MISS, YOU'RE SCREWING MY BOWL PICK'EM
I have a whole lot of "wow" to describe all three of those scenarios. My Grandmother used to whisper when she made her racy "comments." She was from County Wexford so the Irish accent somehow made it better. If Southern Miss loses, my wife will still be ahead of me in the mgoblog pool. None good.
i love old people...
FFFFFFFFFF UUUUUUUUUU !!!!1!!1 Louisville!
Bowl games are a lot like NBA regular season games. Every team makes at least one big run. It's hard to figure out which team is truly motivated. And, in the end, most of the games dont really mean anything. But, they can also be good exhibitions of the sport and a fun view.
Been a good game tonight. Rather watch this than anything else.
Much better than the last three bowl games.
Another plus? No Holtz during halftime. I wish Mark May would just sock him. Just once.
Meanwhile, in Pakistan, this guy is way cooler than Mark May, Lou Holtz, and the entire cast of Breakin 2: Electric Bugaloo combined:
Lville is on their way back. Let's go Cards.
I'd like to break even in record for the mgoblog pool. I got Southern Miss with 10 confidence points. I got screwed by Solich and the Mormons already.
Getting screwed by Mormons doesn't sound like a pleasant experience.
Louisville sure has the momentum right now.
I was definitely thinking the exact opposite. Southern Miss has come out driving.
+ 1 to Sun Belt refs
-1,000,000,000,000 to Lou Holtz. He gets worse as the game goes on.
Southern Miss's WRs need to plow forward instead of dancing and losing potential yards. That fake punt was closer than it should have been.
you perhaps suggesting Mr. Plow transfers to Southern Miss for even better family values?
The last throes of Tickle Me Elmo's life are disturbing.
There is a part 2 and 3...must be torture for the poor guy.
I'll always remember where I was, when I saw a Beef "O" Brady's Bowl kick off record broken.
Gisele's favorite meal.
Gisele's favorite meal. TWICE
That was a horrible call. Ball was clearly out before the Louisville player was down, clearly and conclusively a fumble. Southern Miss was just robbed of at least 3 points, maybe more.
Sun Belt refs: They never take a night off.
Wow. Good job refs. Cost Southern Miss the game with an obviously bad call. Also cost me one of my picks in my bowl pick'em. Thanks a lot.
Tonight, I love Sun Belt refs
Louisville. Such Easy Money tonight. Lulz
1-3 for the mgoblog pool
I had Louisville -2.5 and under 60. I can't believe only 3 total points were scored in the 4th quarter. Finally, I win a close call!
Someone I follow on twitter pointed this out:
Line for this game: Louisville -3. Over/Under 59. Final score: Louisville 31, So Miss 28 (!!).
Vegas wins again...
I have no doubt the Sun Belt referee conference will be at the Mirage.
This is why in the mgoblog pool, when in doubt, I used the spread to determine my confidence level on games.
Didn't the Sun Belt provide the refs for the Michigan/Nebraska game in the Alamo Bowl a few years ago?
Did any of you fine gentlemen and possibly a few ladies feel like Lou Holtz was spitting at you while you watched the game?
